Stand alone personal computers were great, for a while, but soon it became important to connect individual PCs to share files, applications, and peripherals. This program looked at some early connectivity solutions. Included are demonstrations of NetWare Lite from Novell, the AE-3 Ethernet Adaptor from Artisoft, Microcom's LAN Bridge 6000, Newport Systems' LAN2LAN Mega Router, Chatterbox 4000, cc:Mail, the Compsphere 3800 Modem, and the Wireless WAN from Tetherless Access Ltd. Originally broadcast in 1991.

Subject: mostly mundane for today's viewing
I'm sure this was an interesting episode at the time, but I found most of the material pretty dull today.

One interesting moment though is at 15mins, when a lady is showing off some network cards. That 16Mbps token ring card is shockingly big - it consists of 2 full-length boards bolted together. I've seen high end video cards like that, but never knew a mere network card to take up so much board space. Incredible.
Both of her company's cards are driven by off-the-shelf Motorola 68000 processors, and looks like all DIP construction.

Later is a demo of some dialup server hardware that will automatically reset the server if the remote modem abruptly disconnects. Weird.
